Eighth District Court of Appeals Rules in Favor of CWP&G Client and Against the City of Cleveland

In administrative appeal of termination of construction equipment operator in the city's department of public utilities, the Eighth District Court of Appeals determined that the trial court erred in upholding the employee’s termination where employee's action in placing rainfall debris in a creek during a storm did not warrant dismissal under any of the grounds cited by the city since amount of debris was relatively minor and was not shown to have violated any law and in his almost six years working for the city, this was an isolated event.

A copy of the decision can be found on the Ohio Supreme Court's website at http://www.supremecourt.ohio.gov/rod/docs/pdf/8/2015/2015-Ohio-5140.pdf.  If you have any questions regarding the Court of Appeals decision, please do not hesitate to contact CWP&G attorney Stewart “Dan” Roll at (216) 621-8484.
